De Bethune DB28 wins Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix

Yesterday, at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix, De Bethune's DB28 was awarded the top prize, the "Aiguille d'Or" Grand Prix.

De Bethune was founded by David Zanetta and Denis Flageollet in 2002. "The pure contemporary aesthetic of De Bethune mechanical timepieces combines cutting-edge technological innovations with the horological know-how of the Manufacture which is inspired and nurtured by several centuries of history."

I arrived in Geneva yesterday, and had a chance to take some photos at Lake Geneva, including the famous Jet d'eau de Genève. I also had a chance to meet with one high-end brand who exhibits in the Four Seasons Hotel, De Bethune. Today, I will be attending SIHH 2011, which starts in a few hours. Check back later for "live" updates from the show.
